Huge Crowds for Paddy’s Weekend Festival in Dublin

1,771 Entries in the Main Event

The Irish Poker Tour continues to grow and grow. The St. Patrick’s €100k for €100 Festival in Dublin’s Green Isle Hotel proved to be an outstanding success with the venue bursting at the seams to contain the numbers of players wanting the taste of big-time poker at a bargain price.

Main Event Guarantee SMASHED!

In total 1,771 poker enthusiasts paid over their €100 in the hope of striking it big creating a prize pool of €136,722. At the end of four days, it was Gastao Silva who came out on top after a four-way deal that saw him collect €16,000 plus a €1,500 Portugal Adventure package that sponsors Paddy Power Poker had added to the event prizes. Brian Slattery (€12,000), Dean Dowling (€10,000), and Thomas Gallagher (€9,000) were the other deal makers with all four getting a fabulous payout for such a small investment.

The side events were buzzing also with over €100,000 more won in attractively priced one-day events. Tadgh Meegan proved to be the luckiest and the best in the opening Mystery Bounty winning €3,350 for finishing first on top of €3,000 in bounties, whilst Jonas Olali (€6,000) and Tomas Murphy (€5,000) took the bulk of the money in the Dublin 300.

As always at Irish Poker Tour events, there was a cracking atmosphere and lively cash action throughout the four days of the Festival.
